    Revit 2016 tags - flexible box around text?

    Hello,

    Please find attached. Is it possible to create box size parameter in tag family to be controlled from project level as an instance, not type one?
    Thanks

    I don't believe you can use instance parameters in tags. One way to get a flexible border is to check the "show border" tick box, but that would mean the border is rectangular instead of the pill shape your tag uses.
